Sanju box office collection: Sanjay Dutt biopic earns Rs 22 cr on Tuesday, inches towards Rs 200 cr mark
After crossing the Rs 100 crore mark within the opening weekend, Sanju is now slowly and surely getting towards Rs 200 crore.
Rajkumar Hirani's Sanju, which released on 29 June, has done exceptionally well at the box office, recording the highest opening figures and beating Salman Khan's Race 3 and Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmavaat. The Sanjay Dutt biopic was not just received well by the audience but critics as well, for the exceptional performance by the cast.
Within first three days of release, Sanju managed to cross the Rs 100 crore mark and the latest figures suggest the film will smoothly slide into the Rs 200 crore club soon. The film passed the crucial Monday test and earned Rs 25.35 crores.
Tuesday's figures were shared by leading film trade analyst Taran Adarsh on Twitter. Sanju has raked in a whopping amount of Rs 22 crores, making the overall collection Rs 167.51 crore.
